FARC rebels release last 10 military hostages

By Simon Farnsworth

Columbia’s FARC rebels have released their last 10 military and police hostages.

However, the rebel group is still believed to be holding a number of civilians captive.

A Brazilian helicopter collected the hostages- some of whom have been held captive for 14 years- late last night from the Columbian jungle and flew them to the city of Villavicencio where they were welcomed by their relatives.

The freed captives were then given medical checks before being flown to the capital, Bogota.

President Juan Manuel Santos welcomed the freed hostages in his Presidential palace.

Santos said: “Welcome to liberty, soldiers and policemen of Columbia.

“Freedom has been very delayed but now it is yours, to the delight of the whole country.”

President Santos declared that the release of the hostages was “not enough” to open direct peace talks.

He said: “When the government believes there are enough guarantees to begin a process that leads to the end of the conflict, the country will know it.”
